We must bring in Courtois for next season

Bringing in Courtois next season, is to me at least a no brainier. He's far and away the best young keeper in the world by general consensus and is in the talk for best GK in the world of all ages. I will back up my claim that we must bring him in for next season with statistics provided from www.squawka.com

I'm only going to be looking at statistics from league play and champions league play.

In the league:

So far this season Cech has kept 16 clean sheets, an average of 0.71 goals conceded per game, an average of 2.26 saves per goal, an average of 1.53 saves per game, 95% average claim success rate, an average of 60% distribution success at an average of 46m and has played in 34 games. Courtois has kept 19 clean sheets, an average of 0.61 goals conceded per game, an average of 2.79 saves per goal, an average of 1.61 saves per game, an 89% average claim success rate, an average of 62% is distribution success at an average of 47m, and three yellow cards in 33 games. Courtois beats Cech in clean sheets, goals conceded per game, saves per game, saves per goal, and distribution success. Cech beats Courtois in amount of games and cards received.

Champions League:

Cech has kept 5 clean sheets, an average of 0.78 goals conceded per game, an average of 2.17 saves per goal, an average of 1.44 saves per game, 89% average claim success rate, 63% distribution success rate at an average of 47m, and one yellow card in 9 appearances. Courtois, has kept 4 clean sheets, an average of 0.56 goals conceded per game, an average of 4.50 saves per goal, an average of 2.00 saves per game, 100% average claim success rate, a 50% distribution success rate at an average of 53m, and zero cards in 9 games. Courtois beats Cech in goals conceded per games, saves per goal, saves per game, claim rate and cards received. Cech beats courtois in clean sheets and distribution success.

Verdict:

Cech and Courtois are similar in league play with some big differences in Champion's League play. The main difference statistically wise between the two players are their ages, and with Courtois being 21 and producing the some better statistics than Cech (especially in the Champion's Leage) you have to give him the advantage. We must at least give Courtois a chance to fight Cech for the starting job next season or lose out on our best prospect.
